Hello and welcome. From my home office I incorporate every step required to bring my written work to publication. These include, but are not limited to writing, copyediting, proofreading, printing and binding. I enjoy every type of writing specializing in fiction, non-fiction and poetry. To date: I have written more than one hundred poems and slightly less than one hundred short stories. Additionally, I have produced two newsletters and two poem books. Behind the scenes, the bones of my auto-biography acquire substance.
Goals: Becoming a credible, and regarded and well-read writer is important to me. Daily, I study and diligently endeavor to evolve, grow into the craft. Today, my works demonstrate this metamorphosis; today, I write well; still, there remains much to learn. Currently, I seek national and international publication of my works.
Repose: Although our moments in life may differ, some commonalities we share; the need of self identification, expression and purpose. I know me and strive to better my craft and life. Within the scopes of my writings these gifts exist; however, sometimes I struggle to comprehend, to recognize them. The venture engaged; the goals to be met, productivity, mine.
History: Writing (for me) represents a passionate outlet for expressing my feelings and fully embracing a subject, the world around me without discomfort. The venue permits me to approach a theme with honesty and joyful creation. I have struggled most of my life, determining what I want. Then one day, it happened. One day I realized that writing helps me to breathe, helps me to live, offers me something that no other (ever) has, happiness. I am happy to have this wonderful opportunity and would offer my (potential) readers my best.
Summation: The path I follow has, I believe, been waiting for me, and since my birth. Time, and aging and maturation were requisite before the zeal could be mine. I am here, I have grown, and I am ready. Eagerly: while looking to tomorrow through yesterday’s eyes, I dare to venture the search, engaging the risks of finding. I desire to ask the questions, anxiously shouldering the answers. Around me the shadows live, they welcome and embrace me, for, now, I am home.
If you are trusting, and willing and curious, I would share this walk with you.
